What is Facial Fat Grafting?

There are several options to refresh the face and treat lost volume and contours; however, fat transfer to the face is growing in popularity due to its natural-looking results and lasting benefits. Lost volume, commonly due to aging, is usually most noticeable around the eyes, jawlines, and cheeks. Facial fat grafting can be used to minimize some of these more common signs of aging by restoring plumpness to the face by smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face using your natural fat. Typically, fat will be harvested from areas, like the "love handles," hips, or abdomen. Plastic surgeon Dr. Heath Charvet will then carefully apply the purified fat into the desired parts of the face, like the cheeks, lips, and below your eyes, for beautiful, symmetrical, youthful results. With fat transfer to the face, you don't just get a more youthful facial appearance, but you also improve the contours of your body.

How is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?

Facial fat transfer at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa is a two-part surgery that includes fat harvesting and injection. To begin, Dr. Charvet will use liposuction to extract fat from a predetermined area. The fat is harvested, processed, and then prepared for injection. Dr. Charvet will inject the fat into your skin over a series of injections to create symmetry. Following your fat transfer, your incisions will be stitched before you're sent to a recovery area. Dr. Charvet or a member of his staff will apply wound coverings and compression garments before you are taken home by a friend or family member. Follow-up appointments should be scheduled so Dr. Charvet can evaluate your recovery and results. Your recovery will vary, depending on how much fat is taken and transferred, but it typically takes a few weeks. Initially, you may have swelling and bruising in your treatment areas, but that will dissipate over time. You may notice some improvements immediately; however, it takes several weeks before you will be able to see your final outcomes. With good maintenance, your improvements can last for many years.
